Braided Recycle Area Rug---something useful made from useless

An area rug made from my old T-shirts and yoga pants

Cut old clothes into long strips, then braid 3 fabric strips together, as you braid your hair, then stitch the braid to oval or round


A round one which I made before


Tips : 1. when braiding, fold the raw edges towards center, like binding strip, so no raw edges will show in your rug,
          2.Don't cut too narrow strips.  otherwise, when braiding, it's hard to fold edges, and the folded strip will be to narrow.  I personally prefer 1"1/2
       
Some Blah, Blah,  People always say we need reduce waste to protect the environment,  to help the Earth, save our planet. Actually, the earth doesn't need anyone to save.  Pollution, climate changes will not destroy the planet,  tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes probably can only cause scratches on it. but to us, those are devastating disasters, we are the fragile environment-depending little creatures here. It's us who we need to save.
